The 4-3 decision is a victory for personal injury lawyer John Morgan, who spent $4 million on a medical marijuana petition drive, and a defeat for Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi, who fought to keep the question off the ballot. The decision comes three days after Morgan secured enough voter signatures to make the ballot. He made a massive push in December and January to beat the Feb. 1 deadline instead of waiting for the Supreme Court decision a gamble that has now paid off. In our businesses, our cases are against the tobacco industries, pharmaceutical industries, big car companies, so were used to gambles, but we take calculated gambles, Morgan said. We like to win and we dont just go down a rat hole unless we think we can win. Bondi said the matter is now up to voters. I encourage every Floridian to read the full amendment in order to understand the impact it could have on Floridians, she said in a statement issued by her office. Gov. Rick Scott, who is the former CEO of the Columbia/HCA hospital chain, House Voters to decide on medical marijuana Pam Bondiattorney general encourages voters to read the full amendment.

See BALLOT/ Page A2 Officials approve plan for Beatys exit MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Citrus Memorial hospital officials formally approved an agreement that involves Chief Executive Officer Ryan Beaty vacating the hospital by March 15. The agreement, approved unanimously Monday night by the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation, goes Feb. 5 to the Citrus County Hospital Board for final approval. Along with addressing the Beaty situation, the agreement bars the foundation from hiring any current or former hospital employees as the interim CEO in the months before Hospital Corporation of America is expected to begin its 50-year lease of Citrus Memorial. Some foundation members had hoped to bring in Charles Blasband, who held the CEO title for 32 years before his retirement. Beaty succeeded Blasband 10 years ago. While foundation attorney Clark Stillwell suggested the Blasband issue be settled by a four-person committee charged with recommending an interim CEO, hospital board attorney Bill Grant said it was out of the question. Grant said in a hallway interview that trustees wanted an independent person to lead the hospital in the expected transition with HCA. The agreement dismisses two pending lawsuits the CCHB has with the foundation, and includes language to ensure the CCHB will not hold foundation directors See BEATY/ Page A2 Rainy, chilly, icy MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleTwo rowers move swiftly across Lake Henderson early Monday morning as thick fog greeted Citrus County, creating a picturesque setting around the county. Weather expected to be cold and wet in Citrus; Big Bend might get ice CHRISVANORMER Staff writerThe next few days will be cool and wet in Citrus County, while Floridas Big Bend region has been issued a winter storm warning to alert drivers to icy roads. We have a winter storm warning out as far south and east as Madison County, Fla., but not further than that, Mark Wool, National Weather Service in Tallahassee, told the Chronicleon Monday. It does not include your part of the state. Any person planning to travel by vehicle in the Big Bend, which includes Tallahassee, should be aware that the winter storm warning goes into effect from this afternoon until 1 p.m. Wednesday, when daytime temperatures in the area will be around freezing. Temperatures are not going to be warming much on Wednesday, Wool explained. We are expecting the precipitation to start out as rain in the Florida Big Bend, then switch over during the course of Tuesday night in the Panhandle to a mix of freezing rain once the temperatures go below freezing. The Big Bend would get a light freezing rain or light sleet. Light freezing rain is far more hazardous, Wool said. The rain freezes on contact. Ice pellets or sleet are quite a bit less hazardous. We could get one or the other. The chances were high enough for this to happen that we decided to go with a warning for that part of the state. I believe that weve never issued a winter storm warning for these counties in the Florida Big Bend. Central Florida residents will reach for jackets and umbrellas. Senators crafting protection billMIKEWRIGHT Staff writerState Sen. Charlie Dean was so impressed with John Morans presentation Sunday on the deterioration of Florida springs, he asked Moran to bring it to Tallahassee. Moran, a wildlife photographer and springs advocate, spoke Sunday in Homosassa to the Friends of the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. Dean, R-Inverness, asked Moran to offer his photo-based presentation to the Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee, which Dean chairs. In a statement released by his office, Dean said the presentation was enlightening. It is very impressive and to the point about the springs condition, he said. I think it is worthwhile for the members of the committee to see. Moran praised Dean for showing up and speaking up. Charlie said almost all the right things on Sunday, Moran said. I know he cares about the springs, but I also know hes tempted to please the crowd wherever he speaks. What we need now are brave political leaders who understand that the old way of using and abusing water in Florida is simply no longer sustainable. Dean is one of five senators crafting a springs-protection bill, Moran said. Moran said he hopes his presentation has the same impact on committee members as it had on Dean. Pictures have a way of reaching people, he said, that words cannot. Dean invites springs advocate to Capitol CONNIE WELCH/Special to the ChronicleWildlife photographer and springs advocate John Moran speaks Sunday to the Friends of the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge.

Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz all Republicans backed Bondis effort to keep the question off the ballot. I have a great deal of empathy for people battling difficult diseases and I understand arguments in favor of this initiative, Scott said in a statement released by his office. But having seen the terrible effects of alcohol and drug abuse first-hand, I cannot endorse sending Florida down this path and I would personally vote against it. No matter my personal beliefs, however, a ballot initiative would be up to the voters to decide. Weatherford said he hopes voters reject the idea. I have faith they will do their homework and understand the impact of this truly radical proposal. Make no mistake: this is not about compassionate medical marijuana. This is about the Coloradofication of Florida, where the end game is a pot shop on every street corner, Weatherford said in a statement issued through a spokesman. Gaetz office said he had no comment. The people of Florida dont like when their vote is tried to be suppressed, Morgan said. Unfortunately theres some politicians in the state who did not want the people to have the say and they forgot that the power is in the people and democracy is based in the people. Medical marijuana is legal in 20 states and the District of Columbia, and Colorado and Washington state allow recreational use. Polls have shown strong support for the measure in Florida. It must receive 60 percent approval from voters, and Morgan said his attention now turns to the campaign to get the measure passed. Now the people of Florida get to do what the Florida Legislature refused to do, which is to hear evidence, to see testimony, to hear real life stories, to read scientific journals, to talk to real people and then vote on it, Morgan said. He plans a voter registration drive and advertising campaign leading up to the election, as well as an effort to help supporters get to polls. The Democrats hoping to challenge Scott former state Sen. Nan Rich and former Gov. Charlie Crist support medical marijuana. This is an issue of compassion, trusting doctors, and trusting the people of Florida, said Crist, who was a Republican when he served as governor from 2007 to 2011. I will vote for it. Bondi challenged the ballot summary, saying the language was misleading and a more widespread use of marijuana would be allowed than what voters would be led to believe. Justices Barbara Pariente, Fred Lewis, Peggy Quince and James Perry said the ballot language was clear. The proposed amendment has a logical and natural oneness of purpose namely, whether Floridians want a provision in the state constitution authorizing the medical use of marijuana, as determined by a licensed Florida physician, they wrote. The ballot title and summary fairly inform voters of the chief purpose of the amendment and will not mislead voters, who will be able to cast an intelligent and informed ballot. Justices Ricky Polston, Charles Canady and Jorge Labarga dissented. Placing this initiatives title and summary on the ballot will result in Floridians voting on a constitutional amendment in disguise, Polston wrote. He took issue with the ballot summary saying medical marijuana would be allowed for patients with debilitating diseases, but the amendment also allows the use for patients with debilitating conditions, which might not be a disease. Its just going to be rainy and chilly, Mike Clay with Bay News 9 said on Monday. The situation in the Panhandle is marginal at best. Its going to be a big problem up in Georgia, probably Alabama, too. But it barely is going to touch the Florida line. For us, its just going to be rain. Its going to be mild. Its going to turn a lot cooler on Wednesday. It should be a pretty chilly day Wednesday with a high in the 50s. Florida Highway Patrol issued an advisory about winter precipitation causing adverse driving conditions from today through Thursday in North Florida. According to FHP, when the temperature is near freezing, the roadway may look wet when in fact ice is forming. Bridges and overpasses are prone to freezing. In such conditions, motorists should remember to: Slow down. When roads are icy, your vehicle doesnt have the traction required to stop quickly. Dont attempt to pass slower vehicles. Leave plenty of space between your vehicle and the one in front of you. Gently apply your brakes and accelerate at a slow speed. Be patient and courteous. Driving in adverse weather conditions can be stressful. Stay alert and buckle up. Motorists are encouraged to monitor the changing weather conditions and adjust their driving as necessary. Motorists who need assistance may call *FHP (347) on cellphones for assistance.

BEATYContinued from Page A1 WEATHERContinued from Page A1 Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Monday called for spending more money on the states public schools, although his latest request is less than half of what he pushed for in 2013. Scotts pitch for more money also comes amid a tough re-election battle where his political opponents will try to remind voters that the Republican governor called for large cuts to education during his first year in office. Scott, during a stop at a Delray Beach elementary school, asked state legislators to boost spending this fall by $542 million. A year ago Scott wanted a $1.2 billion increase that included enough money to grant every teacher a $2,500 pay raise. Teachers wound up getting raises, but none of them got the exact amount that Scott pledged. But the Scott administration maintains that this years funding request is enough to boost overall public school funding to historic levels of nearly $19 billion. That total includes both local and state tax money We need to provide the tools, training and funding to give our students the best chance for success, Scott said in a statement. Scott plans to release his complete budget recommendations on Wednesday. His office did not provide many details about the education portion including how much his request would increase per-student spending or how much the increase relies on additional local property taxes to pay for it. During his first year in office and confronted with a budget gap, Scott called for a nearly 10 percent cut in overall spending on public schools but he also proposed large tax cuts that he said would stimulate the economy. Republican legislators responded by enacting much smaller tax cuts and they pared back the size of public school cuts to $1.3 billion. This year, Scott and state legislators have a budget surplus to work with, but Scott wants to use $500 million of that surplus to cut existing taxes and fees by $500 million, including rolling back a 2009 increase in auto registration fees. Andy Ford, president of the Florida Education Association, said he would support any increase in money set aside for schools, but said it was not adequate to deal with continued increases in public school enrollment and the new demands placed on teachers through new tests and standards. The needs for Florida students continue to grow and the mandates passed down from elected leaders continue to multiply, Ford said in a statement. Democrats, meanwhile, sharply criticized Scotts latest budget as an attempt to re-write his record just months before he tries to win a second term. When they go to the polls this November, Floridians wont remember this governors politically motivated education budget, said Allison Tant, chairwoman of the Florida Democratic Party. Theyll remember that when they needed this governors help most, he ignored them. This years education budget recommendations from Scott include $8.4 million in professional development for principals and assistant principals as well as $5 million for training and technical assistance for teachers related to the implementation of contentious new state standards. Florida is putting in place standards largely based on Common Core State Standards for all grade levels during the next school year. Scott wants another boost in money for schools Gov. Rick Scottwants to boost spending by $542 million.

The goal is to afford those residents the ability to feed their pets. Animal Services is asking citizens to deliver donations of dog and cat food to their local food bank or to the Animal Services shelter in Inverness to help those residents keep their animals rather than surrendering them to the shelter because they dont have the money to feed them. Concerned citizens have helped, but the food supplies have gotten low again. Monetary donations may be mailed to Citrus County Animal Services, 4030 S. Airport Road, Inverness, FL 34450. The shelter is located at the end of Airport Road, which is off U.S. 41 between the Inverness Airport and the county auditorium/fairgrounds, just south of Inverness. For information, call 352-746-8400. PATFAHERTY Staff writeratt Wade combines talent, technology and a lot of hard work to produce unique pieces of metal art. The longtime Lecanto resident is proprietor of Wade Metal Works, which specializes in hand-cut functional and artistic steel and aluminum products. His work can be found throughout the region, including commercial signs, gates, yard art, home welcome signs, racks, machine and vehicle parts, tools, furniture and 3-D sculptures. He made the participant plaques for the recent dragon boat races in Hernando and turns out picture frames, wall hangings, house numbers, clock faces and various custom designs. He calls it metal art and has been at it about two years, starting the business with his parents, over-the-road truckers who eventually plan on joining him at the shop in Lecanto. The heart of the operation is the plasma cutting system, a computer guided machine that cuts out metal shapes using electrically heated compressed air. Products are finished off by welding, grinding and air brushing or powder coating. Another machine can bend pipe for stands or furniture. Most pieces start life as standard sheets of steel or aluminum of various thicknesses, using his library of pre-made patterns or customer ordered designs he creates. We can do anything from small welcome signs up to ranch entries, said the Lecanto High School graduate, who has survived two open heart surgeries. All of my welcome signs are made of aluminum so they dont rust. He has also developed a grinding technique to give the aluminum a swirled look when he air brushes on the various colors. Ill make anything you want, he said, showing off some flanges he made for a boat engine. I can do up to 5/8 inch steel. He can also work with stainless steel and diamond plate aluminum. But having his own business does have some drawbacks, Wade, 33, acknowledged. I didnt think it would be this hard. I work seven days a week. His schedule has him at Howards Flea Market on weekends and he sells at the major local events, including the upcoming Strawberry Festival and Citrus County Fair.

Leak in CR pipe gets temporary fix Staff reportCRYSTAL RIVER Utility workers made a temporary fix to a leak in decades-old water piping late last week. However, a permanent fix to the problem could cost a lot of money and has to be handled by engineers, according Crystal River Public Works Director Dave Burnell. Last Wednesday, officials noticed a leak in a water pipe which crosses U.S. 19 near Citrus Avenue. Burnell said a valve was created to circumvent the leak area until a permanent fix can be worked out. Burnell said some of the citys water pipes date back to the 1920s and believes the pipe in question is between 50 and 60 years old. He said it cost the about $10,000 for the temporary fix, but a permanent fix could run between $100,000 and $200,000. Burnell added that perhaps only about five customers had their service temporarily disrupted during the installation of the valve.

From staff reports Quake upgrades wont be required at CR nuclear facility PATFAHERTY Staff writerSince the Crystal River area nuclear plant (CR3) is retired and moving into decommissioning, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission will not require certain seismic and flood hazard upgrades triggered by Japans 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster. The Fukushima nuclear energy plant was hit by a tsunami forcing a massive evacuation. Subsequently, the NRC put measures in place to safeguard U.S. nuclear plants from similar events. Last week, the NRC notified Terry Hobbs, CR3 decommissioning director, confirming that due to its decommissioning status, CR3 will not be required to make Fukishima-related upgrades regarding the safety of spent fuel stored in pools at the site. The radiological risks from an operating nuclear plant are significantly different from risks at a decommissioning plant, explained Duke Energy spokeswoman Heather Danenhower. Therefore, the Fukushima upgrades are not applicable to CR3. The NRC determination does not impact our current staffing or decommissioning plan, but rather saves our customers and company from making financial investments in upgrades that are not needed at CR3. In addition, CR3 is designed and built to withstand the impacts of all historical natural disasters for our area, such as hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes and flooding, including storm surges, she said. The plant is approximately one mile from the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico and on top of an earthen berm 30.5 feet above sea level. Danenhower said an additional 10-foot watertight barrier surrounds the plants safety-significant buildings, for a total protection of 40.5 feet. The plant is also located in a seismically inactive area, she said. The probability of a seismic event of the magnitude and nature of what occurred in Japan is highly unlikely due to Floridas geology. The letter, from Michele G. Evans, NRC director, Division of Operating Reactor Licensing, said as studies continue, new information concerning the design of spent fuel pools will be evaluated for applicability to decommissioned sites.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com.

Tarantinos lawsuit accuses Gawker Media LLC of copyright infringement for posting a link to the 146-page script for a planned film titled The Hateful Eight last week. A link to the script was posted on Gawkers Defamer blog and remained active on Monday afternoon, despite demands from Tarantinos lawyers to take it down, the lawsuit states. There was nothing newsworthy or journalistic about Gawker Media facilitating and encouraging the publics violation of (Tarantinos) copyright in the Screenplay, and its conduct will not shield Gawker Media from liability for their unlawful activity, the lawsuit states. An email sent to Gawker seeking comment was not immediately returned. Tarantino blasted the leak last week in an interview with Dead line.com and said he would abandon the project as a film.DiCamillo wins Newbery for best childrens bookNEW YORK Kate DiCamillos Flora & Ulysses, a comic superhero tale featuring a deadly vacuum cleaner and a mighty squirrel, has won the John Newbery Medal for the years best work of childrens literature. Brian Floca won the Randolph Caldecott Medal for his illustrations in Locomotive, a story of the early years of train travel that Floca also wrote. The awards, the most prestigious in childrens publishing, were announced Monday by the American Library Association. DiCamillo, a popular and acclaimed author, won the Newbery a decade ago for The Tales of Despereaux. The Library of Congress recently named her National Ambassador for Young Peoples Literature. A native of Philadelphia who now lives in Minneapolis, the 49year-old DiCamillo said the books origins date back a few years. Her mother was dying and worried what would happen to her vacuum cleaner, which the author ended up inheriting. Around the same time, she noticed an ailing squirrel on her property and was appalled when a friend suggested she whack the squirrel with a shovel and kill it. I started thinking about ways I could save the squirrels life, DiCamillo said.Court: Disgraced ex-journalist cant practice lawSAN FRANCISCO The California Supreme Court denied a law license on Monday to a former journalist caught fabricating dozens of stories for major national magazines. The unanimous seven-judge court ruled that Stephen Glass had insufficiently rehabilitated himself in the years since his misdeeds, saying he failed to carry his heavy burden of establishing his rehabilitation and current fitness. Glass misdeeds stunned the profession when they were uncovered in 1998. His widely publicized fall from grace earned the rising star a prominent place in the pantheon of journalistic cheats and scoundrels such as Janet Cooke and Jayson Blair two prominent reporters caught fabricating quotes, sources and entire stories.

President Enrique Pena Nieto also mourned Pacheco with his own tweet after Pachecos daughter confirmed the death to local journalists. The poet, novelist, journalist, essayist and literary critic came to be seen as a leading representative of the generation of Mexican writers who came of age in the late 1950s and 1960s. He was best known for bittersweet accounts of adolescents growing up in a less crowded, but corrupt and unjust Mexico of the 1940s and s. He was particularly noted for the 1981 novel Las Batallas en el Desierto, or Battles in the Desert, a story of boys infatuation with the mother of one of his classmates. Born June 30, 1939, in Mexico City, Pacheco began publishing his writing as a teenager, and in 1957 began publishing the literary magazines Estaciones with fellow university students Carlos Monsivais and Sergio Pitol, according to an official biography published when he won the Cervantes Prize, the Spanishspeaking worlds highest literary honor.Eric Lawson, 72EX-MARLBORO MAN LOS ANGELES Eric Lawson, who portrayed the rugged Marlboro man in cigarette ads during the late 1970s, has died.

Lawson was an actor with bit parts on such TV shows as Baretta and The Streets of San Francisco when he was hired to appear in print Marlboro ads from 1978 to 1981. His other credits include Charlies Angels, Dynasty and Baywatch. His wife said injuries sustained on the set of a Western film ended his career in 1997. A smoker since age 14, Lawson later appeared in an anti-smoking commercial that parodied the Marlboro man and an Entertainment Tonight segment to discuss the negative effects of smoking. Susan said her husband was proud of the interview, even though he was smoking at the time and continued the habit until he was diagnosed with COPD. He knew the cigarettes had a hold on him, she said. He knew, yet he still couldnt stop. A few actors and models who pitched Marlboro brand cigarettes have died of smoking-related diseases. They include David Millar, who died of emphysema in 1987, and David McLean, who died of lung cancer in 1995. Lawson was also survived by six children, 18 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.A6TUESDAY, JANUARY28, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Dorothy Dahlby Rudolph Kernz INFORMATION Email obits@ chronicleonline.com or phone 352-5635660 for details.

Memory care Short term and long term stays 000H1SY Around theSTATE MiamiScott seeks storm supply tax holidayGov. Rick Scott is proposing a two-week sales tax holiday in Florida for hurricane preparedness supplies ranging from portable generators to first-aid kits. Scott said in Miami on Monday the holiday would be in the first two weeks of June if it is approved by the Legislature. Hurricane season begins on June1 each year and runs through Nov.30. The Republican governor said the measure would save taxpayers about $20 million as part of his overall plan to cut taxes by $500 million this year. Emergency management officials say the tax break would give people more incentive to get prepared. Other covered items include radios, flashlights, tarpaulins, fuel tanks, coolers, ground anchors and batteries.Congressman to resign after scandalMIAMI After going through rehab for cocaine and alcohol abuse and pledging that hed work through his problems to regain his Florida constituents trust, Trey Radels short career in Congress ended with a whimper Monday. Facing a House ethics investigation, a growing group of primary challengers and the steady drumbeat of a Republican establishment calling for him to step down, the 37-year-old, who pleaded guilty to cocaine-possession charges last year, quietly tendered his resignation letter. On Nov. 20, the freshman Republican pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of cocaine possession and was sentenced to a year of probation. He admitted to purchasing 3.5 grams of cocaine from an undercover officer Oct. 29 in Washington.OrlandoCar bypasses guard arm, clipped by train An Amtrak train clipped a car whose driver maneuvered past the tracks warning arm guard, causing minor injuries to the car passengers.

Interestrates Associated PressNEW YORK Stock markets fell across the globe on Monday, but at least it wasnt another rout on Wall Street. Shaky economies and plunging currencies in the developing world fueled a worldwide sell-off as fearful investors pushed prices lower across Asia and Europe. In the U.S. and other rich countries with healthier economies, investors also retreated, although the selling was more modest. Major indexes in both Hong Kong and Tokyo fell more than 2 percent. The selling then spread to Europe and the U.S., as stocks slipped across the board, but the declines were much less than on Friday, when the American market ended its worst week since 2012. Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank, said he wasnt surprised that the U.S. losses were limited. We have an accelerating economy, low inflation and accommodative monetary policy, he said. The world isnt falling apart. The Dow Jones industrial average slipped 41.23 points, or 0.26 percent, to 15,837.88. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 8.73 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,781.56. The Nasdaq was down the most in the U.S., falling 44.56 points, or 1.1 percent, to 4,083.61. The market turbulence was set off last week by a report from China on a downturn in its manufacturing, more evidence that the worlds second-largest economy is slowing. Thats a big problem for Brazil, South Africa and other developing countries that have come to depend on exports to that country. Adding to the troubles: The decision by the U.S. Federal Reserve last month to scale back its bond-buying stimulus for the American economy, which has helped keep interest rates low. Money that had flooded emerging markets looking for higher returns outside the U.S. has begun to come back now that rates may rise, battering those markets. Despite Mondays widespread selling, experts say the troubles in China and elsewhere in the developing world are unlikely to derail a global economic recovery that appears to be gaining momentum. Growth in the worlds wealthy economies is expected to pick up the slack. World market fears shaking up stocks Associated PressA specialist on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange checks a screen Monday. BusinessBRIEFS Poll: Breaches not changing peoples habitsNEW YORK American shoppers say they are very concerned about the safety of their personal information following a massive security breach at Target, but many arent taking steps to ensure their data is more secure, says a new Associated PressGfK Poll. The poll finds a striking contradiction: Americans say they fear becoming victims of theft after the breach that compromised 40 million credit and debit cards and personal information of up to 70 million customers. Yet they are apathetic to try to protect their data. In the survey, nearly half of Americans say they are extremely concerned about their personal data when shopping in stores since the breach. Sixty-one percent say they have deep worries when spending online, while 62 percent are very concerned when they buy on their mobile phones. But just 37 percent have tried to use cash for purchases rather than pay with plastic in response to data thefts like the one at Target, while only 41 percent have checked their credit reports. And even fewer have changed their online passwords at retailers websites, requested new credit or debit card numbers from their bank or signed up for a credit monitoring service.Apples 1Q disappoints Wall Street, stock fallsSAN FRANCISCO Apples holiday season proved to be a disappointment even though the company sold a record number of iPhones and iPads during its latest quarter. The fiscal first-quarter earnings released Monday topped analyst projections, but Apple sold fewer iPhones than Wall Street had been anticipating. Management also forecast revenue for the current quarter that fell below analysts predictions. Those letdowns caused Apples stock to shed $41.62, or more than 7.5 percent, to $508.88 in extended trading after the release of results. The Cupertino, Calif., company sold 51 million iPhones during the three months ending Dec. 28. That marked a 7 percent increase from the previous sales record of nearly 48 million iPhones set a year earlier. But analysts were expecting even bigger things and had predicted about 55 million iPhones in what is traditionally the companys best quarter.Caribbean cruise ended after outbreak of illnessKINGSTON, Jamaica The Royal Caribbean cruise line on Sunday ended a ships 10-day trip in the Caribbean early after hundreds of passengers and crew members were sickened with a gastrointestinal illness. The Miami-based company made the announcement a few hours after officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention boarded the Explorer of the Seas during its U.S. Virgin Islands port call to investigate the illness and evaluate the outbreak response. The CDC said early Monday that 577 of the 3,050 passengers aboard the 15-deck ship reported getting sick during the cruise that left Cape Liberty, New Jersey, on Tuesday. Fortynine crew members also reported feeling ill, according to the CDC. The CDC team will remain on board the ship until the vessel returns to the United States later this week. Tests would have to confirm what caused the outbreak, but fast-spreading norovirus is often to blame for similar symptoms sweeping closed quarters like those on cruise ships.Survey: Businesses more optimistic, but not hiringBusinesses expect their companies to perform better this year, but that optimism still isnt translating into a push to hire more workers, according to a new survey from the National Association for Business Economics. Of the 64 members who responded to NABEs January survey, most said they saw stronger sales in the final months of 2013, and 43 percent expect their companies to modestly hike selling prices this year. Thats the highest percentage in more than 12 months. Most respondents dont expect the new health care law or the Federal Reserves easing of its stimulus policies to have a major impact on business, either. However, only 37 percent expect to create jobs in the next six months, the same as in NABEs October survey. For the fourth quarter, only about a quarter of respondents said their companies expanded payrolls. Those most likely to report increased hiring were from the manufacturing, finance, insurance and real estate sectors.US probes Camry hybrids for power brake problemDETROIT U.S. safety regulators are investigating complaints that power-assisted brakes can fail at times in Camry gas-electric hybrids. The probe covers about 30,000 of the midsize cars from the 2007 and 2008 model years. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it has 59 complaints about intermittent loss of power-brake assist. The agency says the problem happens without warning. It causes increased stopping distances and requires more pedal pressure to stop the car. Two crashes have been reported but no injuries. The agency says 24 incidents happened at speeds of 40 miles per hour or more. It says the number of complaints is increasing, with 55 percent received in the past eight months.Google buys artificial intelligence startup in UKLONDON Google says that it has purchased the British startup DeepMind, an artificial intelligence company founded by a 37-year old former chess prodigy and computer game designer. The American tech giants London office confirmed a deal had been made but refused to offer a purchase price, which is reportedly $500 million. The company was founded by researcher Demis Hassabis together with Shane Legg and Mustafa Suleyman. Hassabis, who is on leave from University College London, has investigated the mechanisms that underlie human memory. Artificial intelligence uses computers for tasks normally requiring human intelligence, like speech recognition or language translation. DeepMind says the company, based in London, specializes in algorithms and machine learning.American Airlines CEOs salary set at $700,000DALLAS The CEO of the new American Airlines says he will get a salary of $700,000 this year and could get a bonus of twice that if the company is highly profitable. But Doug Parker says the majority of his compensation will come in the form of a stock award that hasnt been determined yet. Based on past compensation for Parker and other airline CEOs, those stock awards are likely to be valued at several million dollars. Separately, last month Parker received a retention bonus of stock that, at Mondays closing share price, could be worth $18.9 million if certain merger goals are met by late 2016. Parker told employees Monday that his 2014 compensation would be less than that paid to CEOs at United Airlines and Delta Air Lines, which are roughly the same size as American after its merger with US Airways. He said that he requested the lower payout because union employees at the company are paid less than their counterparts at those airlines. From wire reports

OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, JANUARY 28, 2014 Is this justice?How can the same legal system and the same judge, Judge Howard, weigh our legal system as fair when on Dec. 18, 2013, a 63-year-old school teacher accused of child pornography charges is given 15 months in jail without much description of the charges in the Chroniclenewspaper? In fact, it describes him as a school teaching veteran of 35 years. How many children was he in charge of? Does he live near children? Yet on April 26, 2013, my husband, who was accused of child pornography charges, was sentenced to 38 years in prison. Is this equality for all? He went to ITMs sexual offender therapy on his own, not court-ordered, after his initial arrest on Sept. 11, 2012. He sought counseling, which was helping him. In court it was said about three to five times that he was amenable to help. Both these men were firsttime offenders without prior charges, but my husband worked as a peace officer and was retired. He lives in a retirement area. The newspaper article on this date gave details to make him look evil. It did not bother to say that this man helped a neighbor by saving her life in New York or that this same man helped people in car accidents and worked hard all his life but had the misfortune of having an addictive personality that led him in the wrong direction, viewing Internet images and becoming addicted to watching these inappropriate acts. This person is a father, a husband and a good friend and neighbor who would always stop to help people. Also, it was not mentioned to the court that this man many years prior had fallen and hit his head on the bathroom floor, which may have jolted something in his head. Also as a child, his father pushed him up against the wall and he hit his head. How does the school teacher who was around children making his living teaching children come out with a 15-month sentence, but a retired 61-year-old peace officer get 38 years when they basically did the same thing? How does a man who otherwise always gave back to society and his family and who was seeking counseling without a court order not earn a second chance to rectify and make himself a better person? He was also seeking spiritual help by attending church to ask God for forgiveness.Linda EthridgeYes to single-payerA recent letter to the Chronicleobserved: I dont support universal health care. Look at all the countries that had it. Its a total failure. To begin with, I notice the writers use of the past tense countries that had it. Actually I dont know of a single western European country with a government-funded health system that abandoned it and moved back to a free market approach. Obviously, the various systems evolve as ideas on how to make them work better come up. But I dont know of a country with a powerful political movement based on re-privatizing their health care. The in-country polls I have seen suggest a lot of support for their centralized health care. If one looks at health care systems and how services are delivered, the United States has steadily fallen over recent decades in such categories as infant morality rates, life expectancy and various other categories generally considered to measure the effective delivery of health care. And, to add insult to injury, our medical costs per person rank No. 1, with many of the government-controlled systems delivering better health care at a significantly lower price. Most of the European countries spend two-thirds or less per capita than we do and, judging from the statistics, are delivering better care. From my point of view, a single-payer system in America would be a change for the better get these private health care coverage-providers out of the system. In doctors offices I hear employees endlessly complaining about the amount of time they spend dealing with multiple companies using different forms and procedures.Michael Francis Homosassa Editors note: Paul Herbert, a snowbird from northern Virginia, is sharing his letters to family and friends with the Chronicle in the blog section of chronicleonline.com. This entry is from his 20th day in Citrus County.Fun fact for today: According to the New York Times, the acronym OMG which we think of as recent goes back to at least 1917, when someone used it in a letter to Winston Churchill. But the old Gray Lady (theTimes, not Churchill) ought to know better than calling OMG an acronym, for it is simply three letters strung together to mean something. An acronym, as most of you readers know, is when the letters form something that sounds like a word, such as SCUBA (self-contained underwater breathing apparatus). Doing my part to augment the acronym glossary: were having AGDIF (another great day in Florida). Of course, enjoying AGDIF evades mom and dad back in Ohio, but at least theyre enjoying the Honey Bells we sent them from Ferris Groves. Too bad we couldnt send them some sunshine, but until a Silicon Valley whiz-kid develops an iPhone app for that, were stuck with sending citrus. Theres an American-Canadian Snowbird club here. It boasts about 140 members who get together for various events, including euchre, golf, and shuffleboard. I figure the Canadians (and Michiganders) secretly spend all their time giving thanks that theyre here, not back home. The club sounds like good fun, something wed join if we were here a little longer. Were still doing the basic introductory 101 stuff, like visiting Weeki Wachee and Silver Springs Park, more seeing than doing, more tourist than snowbird. Thank you for the kind remarks over the last few weeks about my snowbird letters. Some of you went so far as to compare my writing to the likes of Carl Hiaasen, Dave Barry, and Bill Bryson. I know I couldnt even carry Bill Brysons iPad, but I appreciate the compliments. And no worries, theres no chance of me getting a big head, even though (ahem, clears throat) I just got published in the venerable Citrus County Chronicle, perhaps the most important paper read daily by every world leader. (Perhaps, is quite a weasel word, right up there with might.) As soon as I start feeling good about my writing, KAPOW! a royalty check sucker-punches me back to humility, back to the worn adage about writing for enjoyment, not money. Frankly, Id be OK with both. And that, dear friends, is that. AGDIF, Paul Paul Herbert is visiting Citrus County for the month of January, possibly longer if things work out right. He hopes this is his first of many winter trips here from his home in northern Virginia. Paul is the author of God Knows All Your Names, The Jefferson Hotel: The History of a Richmond Landmark, and Elinor Fry: A Legacy of Dance in Richmond.

But it cant. The CMH governing board has been working diligently to get CEO Ryan Beaty to resign before they reached a final settlement with the foundation board. Two weeks ago Beaty did just that, and agreed to resign as of March 15 as long as all of the lawsuits against foundation board members were dropped. Then comes the news that a temporary hospital executive will have to be hired at a cost of $30,000 to $40,000 a month to run the facility during an interim period. The warring boards are close to signing off on a deal to lease the public hospital to HCA, the largest health care provider in the nation. Along the way, more than $11 million has been wasted on legal fees and additional millions flubbed away with negotiators, consultants and other experts who have all failed to dig us out of this mess. The one thing all of these expenditures have in common is that they are paid for by you the taxpayer and/or health care consumer of Citrus County. Now they want to spend up to $40,000 a month for an interim CEO to step in and navigate the hospital for the time it takes to negotiate the final deal with HCA. When is the gravy train going to stop? The fourperson committee assigned by the two boards to finalize these details needs to take a collective deep breath and find another alternative to dropping a halfmillion dollars of our money. There are leadership alternatives on the existing hospital staff, or former hospital leaders in our community who could be called upon to manage the facility for a short period of time. The catastrophic waste that has been piled up during this controversy will already go down in the record books for the political fight that cost the taxpayers more money than all of the previous controversies combined. Stop it. Find an alternative other than bringing in another out-of-county expert we cant afford.

We need to put an end to executions in this country. It has become just no more than a terrible joke. Last week in Ohio, a similar scenario where a man, after 25 years, was executed. During the execution, he gasped twice and it took 25 minutes to declare him dead. So now, of course, the family is suing the state of Ohio for, you know, the pain that this poor man suffered.

Associated PressWASHINGTON From the White House to the Vatican to the business elite in Davos, Switzerland, one issue keeps seizing the agenda: the growing gap between the very wealthy and everyone else. Its the defining challenge of our time, says President Barack Obama, who will spotlight the issue in his State of the Union address tonight. A Gallup poll finds twothirds of Americans are unhappy with the nations distribution of wealth. Experts say it may be slowing the economy. Why has the issue suddenly galvanized attention? Here are questions and answers about the wealth gap what it is and why it matters.Q.Hasnt there always been a wide gulf between the richest people and the poorest?A.Yes. Whats new is the widening gap between the wealthiest and everyone else. Three decades ago, Americans income tended to grow at roughly similar rates, no matter how much you made. But since roughly 1980, income has grown most for the top earners. For the poorest 20 percent of families, its dropped. Incomes for the highestearning 1 percent of Americans soared 31 percent from 2009 through 2012, after adjusting for inflation, according to data compiled by Emmanuel Saez, an economist at University of California, Berkeley. For the rest of us, it inched up an average of 0.4 percent. In 17 of 22 developed countries, income disparity widened in the past two decades, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.Q.So who are the top 1 percent in income?A.Theyre bankers, lawyers, hedge fund managers, founders of successful companies, entertainers, senior managers and others. One trend: Corporate executives, doctors, and farmers made up smaller shares of the top 1 percent in 2005 than in 1979. By contrast, the proportion of the wealthiest who work in the financial and real estate industries has doubled. The top 1 percent earned at least $394,000 in 2012. Through most of the post-World War II era, the top 1 percent earned about 10 percent of all income. By 2007, that figure had jumped to 23.5 percent, the most since 1928. As of 2012, it was 22.5 percent.Q.How has the middle class fared?A.Not well. Median household income peaked in 1999 at $56,080, adjusted for inflation. It fell to $51,017 by 2012. The percentage of American households with income within 50 percent of the median one way of measuring the middle class fell from 50 percent in 1970 to 42 percent in 2010.Q.Does it matter if some people are much richer than others?A.Most economists say some inequality is needed to reward hard work, talent and innovation. But a wealth gap thats too wide is usually unhealthy. It can slow economic growth, in part because richer Americans save more of their income than do others. Pay concentrated at the top is less likely to be spent. It can also trigger reckless borrowing. Before the 2008 financial crisis, middle class households struggled to keep up their spending even as their pay stagnated. To do so, they piled up debt. Swelling debt helped inflate the housing bubble and ignite the financial crisis. Experts note that the Great Depression and the Great Recession were both preceded by surging income gaps and heedless borrowing by middle-class Americans.Q.Has it become harder for someone born poor to become rich?A.The evidence is mixed. Countries that have more equal income distributions, such as Sweden and other Scandinavian countries, tend to enjoy more social mobility. But a study released last week found that the United States isnt any less mobile than it was in the 1970s. A child born in the poorest 20 percent of families in 1986 had a 9 percent chance of reaching the top 20 percent as an adult, the study found roughly the same odds as in 1971. Other research has shown that the United States isnt as socially mobile as once thought. In a study of 22 countries, economist Miles Corak of the University of Ottawa found that the United States ranked 15th in social mobility. Only Italy and the Britain among wealthy countries ranked lower. By some measures, children in the United States are as likely to inherit their parents economic status as their height.Q.So why has income inequality worsened?A.Theres no simple answer. Globalization has created superstars and concentrated pay among corporate executives, Wall Street traders, popular entertainers and financial elite. At the same time, factory workers now compete with 3 billion people in China, India, eastern Europe and elsewhere who werent working for multinational corporations 20 years ago. Many now make products for Apple, Intel, General Motors and others at low wages. NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, JANUARY28, 2014 A11 000H6HA Appointment Call 228-4975 6254 W.

Time to set the record straight on a few things: Yup, Bill Clinton really was the most longwinded. Nope, it doesnt have to be a speech. And, in truth, this annual event doesnt happen every year. Five things to know about what White House insiders call the SOTU: 1. IT DOESNT HAVE TO BE A SPEECH. The Constitution says the president shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient. Its typically been a speech ever since Woodrow Wilson in 1913, with the exceptions of Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover. Dont expect that to change anytime soon: What modern president would give up all that free TV time? 2. CLINTON TAKES TOP HONORS SORT OF. Clintons reputation for being long-winded is deserved. The Presidency Project tallied up the length of every State of the Union delivered via speech since Lyndon Johnson, and Clintons average is tops: 1 hour, 14 minutes, 51 seconds. 3. AN ANNUAL EVENT: NOT EXACTLY. Nowhere is it written that the State of the Union has to be done yearly. Thats just what evolved from the constitutional directive to report from time to time. The last four outgoing presidents Bush, Clinton, Bush and Reagan all skipped doing one just before leaving office. 4. SOMEBODY GETS THE NIGHT OFF. The State of the Union is one of those things that Cabinet members generally are expected to turn out for. But somebody always gets the night off with extra security. Thats to ensure theres a designated survivor to run the government if something catastrophic wipes out everybody at the speech. Last year, Energy Secretary Steven Chu got the bye. 5. RONALD REAGAN STARTED THAT WHOLE SHOUT-OUT THING. The presidential habit of making a strategic shout-out to someone in the congressional balcony dates to 1982, when Ronald Reagan paid tribute to Lenny Skutnik, the federal worker who dove into the freezing waters of the Potomac River to rescue an Air Florida crash victim. Reagan highlighted Skutnik as an everyday hero. Now, presidents routinely recognize guests in the balcony to underscore all sorts of points. Wealth gap: A guide to what it is, why it matters

Ukraines president ready to scrap anti-protest law Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine Ukraines beleaguered president on Monday agreed to scrap harsh anti-protest laws that set off a wave of clashes between protesters and police over the past week, a potentially substantial concession to the opposition that stopped short of meeting all of its demands. In a possibly major sticking point, a proposed amnesty for arrested protesters would not be offered unless demonstrators stopped occupying buildings and ended their round-the-clock protests and tent camp on Kievs central Independence Square, according to a statement by Justice Minister Elena Lukash on the presidential website. President Viktor Yanuko vych has been under increasing pressure since he pushed the tough laws through parliament, setting of clashes and protests in other parts of the country in a sharp escalation of tensions after weeks of mostly peaceful protests over his rejection of a deal to deepen ties with the 28-nation European Union. At a meeting between top opposition figures and Yanukovych late Monday a political decision was made on scrapping the laws of Jan. 16, which aroused much discussion, Lukash said. She made no mention of a key opposition demand that Yanukovych resign. One of the opposition figures, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, turned down the prime ministers job, which Yanukovych had offered him on Saturday, the statement said. Eliminating the laws, which is likely to be done in a special parliament session today, appears to be a serious step back for the government. The session is also expected to include a discussion of government responsibility in the crisis, suggesting a cabinet reshuffle could be imminent. Rollers Associated PressSnow rollers dot a field Monday near Oil City, Pa., the result of an ideal combination of snow, temperature and wind. The typical cylindrical shape of the naturally occurring formations are also known as snow doughnuts, snow pipes, snow onions and snow logs. Police: Student fire apparent suicide tryWESTMINSTER, Colo. A 16-year-old boy set himself on fire at a suburban Denver high school on Monday in an apparent suicide attempt that left him critically injured, authorities said. The boy didnt make any threats before starting the fire in the cafeteria at Standley Lake High School at about 7:15a.m., Westminster Police Department spokeswoman Cheri Spottke said. A custodian was able to use a fire extinguisher to put out the blaze before it could spread, Spottke said. Several other students were in the cafeteria at the time, but none were injured.Avalanches cut off only road to one cityANCHORAGE, Alaska Highway access to the city at the end of the trans-Alaska pipeline has been cut off indefinitely by avalanches, including one that dammed a river and created a lake up to a half-mile long across the roadway in a 300-foot wide mountain canyon. State Department of Transportation officials said Monday that the snow slide about 12 miles outside Valdez on the Richardson Highway cannot be cleared until water behind the snow drains. The water in Keystone Canyon is too deep on the upstream side for crews to approach the snow dam. Officials fear that digging from the downstream side could trigger a dangerous surge of water and harm work crews.Nun to be sentenced for sabotageNASHVILLE, Tenn. An 83year-old Catholic nun convicted in a protest and break-in at the primary U.S. storehouse for bomb-grade uranium will find out Tuesday whether she spends what could be the rest of her life in prison. Sister Megan Rice is one of three Catholic peace activists convicted of sabotage last year after they broke into the nuclear weapons plant in Oak Ridge, Tenn. Sentencing for all three is scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday at U.S. District Court in Knoxville. The government has recommended sentences of about six to nine years each for Rice, Michael Walli and Greg BoertjeObed. It also is seeking restitution of nearly $53,000 for damage incurred when the three cut through fences and painted slogans on the outside wall of the uranium processing plant. The protesters also splattered blood and hammered on the wall. The activists are asking for leniency. Company increases leak estimate in W.Va.CHARLESTON, W.Va. West Virginia regulators said the company behind a chemical spill that contaminated the water supply of 300,000 people now estimates some 10,000 gallons of chemicals leaked, up from an earlier figure of 7,500 gallons. West Virginias Department of Environmental Protection released the new figure Monday from Freedom Industries regarding the scope of a Jan. 9 leak from a plant in Charleston. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A12TUESDAY, JANUARY 28, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Senate acts on flood bill Associated PressWASHINGTON Bipartisan legislation that would delay flood insurance premium hikes for hundreds of thousands of people living in coastal and low-lying areas cleared its first hurdle in the Senate on Monday. The 86-13 vote demonstrated the measure had filibuster-proof support in the chamber, which was likely to pass it in a few days. The legislation would delay for up to four years premium increases set to phase in next year on homeowners facing whopping premium increases under new flood maps and would allow homeowners with subsidized insurance policies to pass them on to people who buy their homes. The higher premiums were the result of changes made to the federal flood insurance program less than two years ago widely praised as long-overdue reforms of the program that were designed to make it more financially stable and bring insurance rates more in line with the real risk of flooding. But the new rates have caused sticker shock for hundreds of thousands of people who could face big premium jumps as flood maps are updated in coming years. And the loss of subsidies when homes are sold has put a damper on the real estate market and threatened home values. Homeowners are seeing estimates that in many cases would force premium hikes of 10 times or more as their homes are judged to be at greater risk of flooding. US looks at ways to prevent spying on its spying Associated PressWASHINGTON The U.S. government is looking at ways to prevent anyone from spying on its own surveillance of Americans phone records. As the Obama administration considers shifting the collection of those records from the National Security Agency to requiring that they be stored at phone companies or elsewhere, its quietly funding research to prevent phone company employees or eavesdroppers from seeing whom the U.S. is spying on, The Associated Press has learned. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has paid at least five research teams across the country to develop a system for high-volume, encrypted searches of electronic records kept outside the governments possession. The project is among several ideas that would allow the government to discontinue storing Americans phone records, but still search them as needed. Under the research, U.S. data mining would be shielded by secret coding that could conceal identifying details from outsiders and even the owners of the targeted databases, according to public documents obtained by The Associated Press and AP interviews with researchers, corporate executives and government officials. In other developments Monday: The Justice Department and leading Internet companies agreed to a compromise with the government that would allow the firms to reveal how often they are ordered to turn over information about their customers in national security investigations. The deal with Google Inc., Microsoft Corp., Yahoo Inc., Facebook Inc. and LinkedIn Corp. would provide public information in general terms. Other technology companies were also expected to participate. Published reports said new documents leaked by former NSA contactor Edward Snowden suggest that popular mapping, gaming and social networking apps on smartphones can feed the NSA and Britains GCHQ eavesdropping agency with personal data, including location information and details such as political affiliation or sexual orientation. The reports, published by The New York Times, theGuardianand ProPublica, said the intelligence agencies get routine access to data generated by apps such as the Angry Birds game franchise or the Google Maps navigation service. When TheNew York Timespublished a censored U.S. document on the smartphone surveillance program, computer experts said they were able to extract what appeared to be the name of an NSA employee, the Middle Eastern terror group the program was targeting and details about the types of computer files the NSA found especially useful. Since Snowden began leaking documents in June, his supporters have maintained they have been careful not to disclose any agents identity or operational details that would compromise ongoing surveillance. The employee did not return phone or email messages from the AP. A spokesman for the newspaper did not respond to emails from the AP. The NSA and DNIs office declined to comment. NBC News reported that British cyber spies demonstrated a pilot program to their U.S. partners in 2012 in which they were able to monitor YouTube in real time and collect addresses from the billions of videos watched daily, as well as some user information, for analysis. At the time the documents were printed, they were also able to spy on Facebook and Twitter. The network said the monitoring program was called Squeaky Dolphin. Under pressure, the administration has provided only vague descriptions about changes it is considering to the NSAs daily collection and storage of Americans phone records, which are presently kept in NSA databanks. To resolve legal, privacy and civil liberties concerns, President Barack Obama this month ordered the attorney general and senior intelligence officials to recommend changes by March 28 that would allow the U.S. to identify suspected terrorists phone calls without the government holding the phone records itself. One federal review panel urged Obama to order phone companies or an unspecified third party to store the records; another panel said collecting the phone records was illegal and ineffective and urged Obama to abandon the program entirely. Internal documents describing the Security and Privacy Assurance Research project do not cite the NSA or its phone surveillance program. But if the project were to prove successful, its encrypted search technology could pave the way for the government to shift storage of the records from NSA computers to either phone companies or a third-party organization. A DNI spokesman, Michael Birmingham, confirmed the research was relevant to the NSAs phone records program. He cited interest throughout the intelligence community but cautioned that it may be some time before the technology is used. The intelligence directors office is by law exempt from disclosing detailed budget figures, so its unclear how much money the government has spent on the SPAR project, which is overseen by the DNIs Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity office. Birmingham said the research is aimed for use in a situation where a large sensitive data set is held by one party which another seeks to query, preserving privacy and enforcing access policies. A Columbia University computer sciences expert who heads one of the DNI-funded teams, Steven M. Bellovin, estimates the government could start conducting encrypted searches within the next year or two. If the NSA wanted to deploy something like this it would take one to two years to get the hardware and software in place to start collecting data this way either from phone companies or whatever other entity they decide on, said Bellovin, who is also a former chief technologist for the Federal Trade Commission. The NSAs surveillance program collects millions of Americans daily calling records into a central agency database. When the agency wants to review telephone traffic associated with a suspected terrorist the agency made 300 such queries in 2012 it then searches that data bank and retrieves matching calling records and stores them separately for further analysis.

The Wildcats (20-0) are again a runaway No. 1, receiving 63 firstplace votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel. The Orange (19-0) got the other No. 1 votes. Florida jumped from sixth to third while Wichita State (21-0), the other undefeated Division I team, moved up one spot to fourth. San Diego State and Kansas both moved up two places to fifth and sixth. They were followed by Michigan State, which dropped from third, Oklahoma State, Villanova and Michigan. The Wolverines jumped from 21st to 10th after beating Michigan State. No. 20 Creighton moved back into the rankings after being out for one week. No. 25 Texas moves into the poll for the first time since 2010-11. The Longhorns have beaten three straight ranked opponents for the first time in school history. Cruising into the finals Seven Rivers whips Eagles in district semifinals 62-23C.J. RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO The key basket came just 14 seconds into the second half. Thats when Alyssa Gage banked in a layup, which gave her 24 points in the game one more than Seven Rivers Christians firstround opponent in the District 2A-3 girls basketball tournament, Leesburg First Academy, would score in the game. There was no surprise in the 62-23 Warrior victory. In two previous games this season, the average point spread had been 38 points. Still, Seven Rivers coach Gary Dreyer refused to put this one in the victory column too quickly. I dont take any game for granted, he said. First Academy gives everything theyve got, give them credit for that. They work hard. Anything can happen. We could have an injury, they could get hot with their three-point shooting. Their 42 (freshman Peyton Marshall) is a good shooter. You have to work hard and play the best you can. It may not have been the best the Warriors could play, but it was more than good enough. Gage and Alexis Zachar set the tempo early, getting plenty of assistance from Tessa Kacer. Gage and Zachar combined for 35 first-half points as Seven Rivers rolled to a 46-12 lead. That early basket by Gage in the third quarter started the running clock, with the Warriors up 36 points. Gage would finish with 26 points and Zachar would score 20 for Seven Rivers, 14-9 overall, with neither player on the court in the fourth period. Kacer added six. Marshall led First Academy, which finished the season at 2-17, with 10. First Academy was supposed to host the tournament, but the Eagles had a problem with their gym, so it was shifted to Seven Rivers not seen as a problem by First Academy. I enjoy coming here and playing, said Eagles coach Arthur In search of arms in Atlanta Braves must replace Hudson, Maholm in starting rotation Associated PressATLANTA Braves closer Craig Kimbrel has played only three full seasons in the majors, and already his contemporaries are considered the veterans of the team. That includes Atlantas rotation, where replacements must be found for departed veterans Tim Hudson and Paul Maholm. Hudson signed with the Giants and Maholm is a free agent. The rotation returns Kris Medlen, Mike Minor, Julio Teheran and Brandon Beachy. Kimbrel, 25, said its difficult for him to realize the young starters must now lead the rotation. Yeah, its kind of hard. Guys that I played minor league ball with are now the veterans of the ballclub, Kimbrel said Monday, the first day of the Braves informal pitching camp. Its something that happened really fast and a lot of those guys are Associated PressFlorida guard Scottie Wilbekin, left, and center Patric Young tie-up Tennessee guard Jordan McRae Saturday in Gainesville. Florida defeated Tennessee 67-41 and jumped to No. 3 in the AP Top 25 released Monday. Harris back practicing with Florida basketball teamGAINESVILLE Florida forward Damontre Harris, who was dismissed from the team last month, is back practicing with the third-ranked Gators. Coach Billy Donovan said Harris is working with the scout team and involved in team activities, but the former South Carolina transfer wont play or be on the bench this season. Donovan said it would completely devalue our core values if he allowed Harris to play this season. Harris transferred to Florida after South Carolina fired coach Darrin Horn in 2012. He sat out last season under NCAA transfer rules and was supposed to make his Florida debut in October. But Donovan suspended him indefinitely for violating team rules. Harris was eventually released from his scholarship and given an opportunity to transfer, but he asked Donovan for another chance.From wire reports PollsSee Page B3 for the complete list of mens and womens college basketball polls.

Seven Rivers won a thriller in overtime, 55-54. Seven Rivers escapes Crystal River with 55-54 overtime victory SEANARNOLD CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER A low-scoring early contest made way for a lights-out fourth quarter in Mondays boys hoops action between Crystal River and Seven Rivers Christian. Despite excellent senior-night games from Pirates Hunter Roessler and John Parry, Adam Gage and his visiting Warriors delivered just enough to prevail for a 55-54 overtime victory in the Crystal River gym. The teams drained four 3s apiece in the fourth, exchanging leads throughout, but it was a defensive play that helped send the game into overtime. Moments after CRHS junior John Hess (nine points) evened the score at 50-50 with 27 seconds left in regulation, sophomore guard Khyrel Harvey blocked a 3-point attempt by Warriors junior Cory Weiand (14 points, 10 rebounds). He then saved the ball from going out of bounds with a mid-air pass to his nearby teammate, preventing Seven Rivers (7-12) from taking another potential gamewinning shot. The action slowed back down during the extra time, as Gages 5-for-6 foul shooting bested a pair of free throws from the senior Roessler (team-high 22 points, 11 for 13 on free throws) and a putback bucket from Pirates junior John Hess (nine points). After Hess basket with five seconds remaining, the Warriors successfully inbounded the ball and avoided getting fouled as the final seconds ticked away. SRCS uncharacteristically struggled shooting from the floor early, as Gage managed two of his teams only three field goals in the opening half, and the team missed at least six from long-range in the opening quarter. The senior later exploded for 24 second-half points en route to a game-high 33. Seven Rivers head coach Jim Ervin complimented his teams defense, but See CRUISING/ Page B3 See WARRIORS/ Page B3

Broncos Rodgers-Cromartie might retire after Super Bowl Associated PressJERSEY CITY, N.J. Dominique RodgersCromartie is 27 years old, right in his prime as an NFL player. Perfect time to retire. The Denver Broncos cornerback said Monday hes giving serious consideration to hanging it up after the Super Bowl. Hes not burned out, not worried about his health. He just figures hes had a good run. I had a goal of playing 5 years, and I reached that, Rodgers-Cromartie said. Hes completed six seasons in the NFL, in fact, and could be in line to command plenty of money after making three interceptions in 2013. But RodgersCromartie insisted that depending on how he feels after Sundays game, he might call it quits. He even knows what he would do instead of football. Hed go back to college and study psychology to become a guidance counselor at his old high school. I had my fun in this league, he said. Rodgers-Cromartie came out of Football Championship Subdivision Tennessee State and figures he wasnt supposed to make it in the NFL at all from a small school, let alone surpass the average 2 to 3 years that players last in the league. He wasnt a typical lower-division prospect, though, selected by the Cardinals with the 16th overall pick in 2008. Rodgers-Cromartie played three years in Arizona and two in Philadelphia before joining the Broncos. He regularly tells his teammates about his plan. They always think I am joking about it, he said. Even if he sticks around next season, Rodgers-Cromartie cant imagine repeating the feat of fellow Denver cornerback Champ Bailey, whos in his 15th year in the league. Asked about Baileys longevity, RodgersCromartie exclaimed a curse word in admiration, then added, He can have that.Quiet MarshawnStar running back Marshawn Lynch was not one of the 17 Seattle players or coaches assigned to podiums for media day on Tuesday. Thats not surprising considering Lynchs reluctance for media attention. Getting Lynch to speak with the media this season has been as difficult as trying to tackle him. He was originally fined $50,000 by the league after the end of the regular season for not speaking to the media. The fine was appealed and put on hold as long as Lynch complied with league policy during the playoffs. But Super Bowl media day is an entirely different environment than the few times Lynch has made himself available in front of his locker at the Seahawks team facility. Asked how hed handle it, Seattle fullback Michael Robinson chuckled. I think Ill probably be there with him, he said. Associated PressDenver Broncos cornerback Dominique RodgersCromartie talks with reporters Monday during a news conference in Jersey City, N.J. The Broncos will play the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE going to have to step into those shoes and win a lot of baseball games. Medlen, 28, has the most experience of the returning starters. He made his debut in Atlanta in 2009 and led last years staff with 15 wins. The others came up in 2010 or later. Minor was 13-9 with a 3.21 ERA last season. Teheran, 23, enjoyed his breakthrough last season, when he was 14-8 with a 3.20 ERA. Beachy missed most of last season recovering from elbow ligamentreplacement surgery in 2012. He had a follow-up procedure last year to clean up the elbow and said Monday he expects to be ready when pitchers and catchers report to spring training on Feb. 13. Beachy said his offseason has gone exactly as I would have hoped to this point. He said hell approach workouts before spring training a little smarter with velocity but will have no restrictions when the Braves report to Florida. Theres always going to be a little something in the way back part of the mind until I go out there in April and get a few starts under my belt, Beachy said. Every day I come out here and throw and dont feel anything just eases that a little bit. Beachys return as a healthy member of the rotation is a key for the Braves this spring. He was only 5-5 but led the National League with a 2.00 ERA when his 2012 season ended after 13 starts. The Braves have added some veterans to bolster the rotation. Gavin Floyd, 31, signed a one-year $4 million deal last month. Floyd is recovering from surgery in May to repair the ulnar collateral ligament and a torn flexor muscle in his right elbow. That ended the right-handers seventh season with the White Sox. Braves general manager Frank Wren said he hopes Floyd will be ready by May. Kimbrel said Floyd was an important addition for the Braves, who won 96 games and the NL East title in 2013. Thats a good guy to put in our rotation, and when hes on hes really good, Kimbrel said. I think that is a big move. Its not a big money move but strategy wise it is a big move for our ballclub. The Braves also re-signed righthander Freddy Garcia, 37, to a minor league deal and invited him to their big league camp. Garcia went 1-2 with a 1.65 ERA in six games for the Braves, including three starts, late last season. Left-hander Alex Wood is expected to compete with Garcia for the No. 5 spot in the rotation this spring. Wood was 3-3 with a 3.13 ERA overall and 3-2 with a 3.54 ERA in 11 starts. Right-hander David Hale, who allowed only one run in two starts, is another pitcher to watch in the spring. Clark. We havent beaten them in four years, but they treat us real well. And were getting there (as a team). Dreyer wouldnt say it, but hosting the 2A-3 final against Ocala St. John (14-7 for the season) had to be a welcome development. The Saints defeated Seven Rivers 56-46 in their only meeting this season, but that came Dec. 5 at St. John. It was the same exact situation last year, said Dreyer. The good thing is were in the final. (The Saints) have a good team. They always have a good team. They prepare all their players well. Theres not one player on that team that isnt good. Senior Sara Poehlman (12.0 points per game) and sophomore Jenny Bollinger (11.8 points) are the top offensive threats for St. John, which was unbeaten in 2A-3 play. There is one notable difference between last year and this. A year ago, Seven Rivers was also the second seed when it faced top seed St. John in the final and won and it came at St. John. Fridays district final begins at 7 p.m. The winner hosts the 2A-4 runner-up Feb. 4, while Fridays loser must travel to play the 2A-4 winner, in the opening round of the regional tournament.

The Hurricanes (21-2) host South Sumter tonight at 7 p.m. for Senior Night.Ravens hire Kubiak to be offensive coordinatorOWINGS MILLS, Md. Former Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has been hired to be the Baltimore Ravens new offensive coordinator. The Ravens announced the hiring on Monday. The 52-year-old Kubiak replaces Jim Caldwell, who left to become coach of the Detroit Lions. Kubiak was offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos for three years before being named Houstons head coach in 2006. He was fired on Dec. 6 of this season after the Texans started 2-11. He had a 61-64 regular season record and went 2-2 in the postseason with Houston. Kubiak takes over an offense that was ranked 29th in the NFL. Baltimore went 8-8 after winning the Super Bowl last year.From staff and wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS said his squad, which finished 18 of 21 from the foul line, seemed flat before the game and at halftime in the locker room. He credited his bench for infusing some enthusiasm into his team with its vocal encouragement. It was one of those deals where our kids thought they had the game won before they stepped on the court, Ervin said. But when you play a county team, theyre going to compete. Its not like were that much better of a team. Im disappointed in our desire to win tonight. I take nothing from Crystal River, he continued. I thought it executed well offensively and defensively. (CRHS head coach) Steve Feldman does a nice job here. The game was tied 3-3 midway through the first quarter, and the teams combined for one 3-pointer in the first half. By halftime, the Pirates (4-15) held a 20-17 advantage. The first half was a grinder, Feldman said, and we like that tempo. Thatll keep you around a lot of games. I didnt think our defense was bad. I thought we were giving as much help as we could on Adam (Gage) and Cory (Weiand). The teams combined for 13 3-pointers in the second half, with Roessler, Parry (17 points and 11 boards), Gage and Weiand heating up offensively. Parry knocked down a pair of 3s in the third in helping his Pirates to a 30-28 edge heading into the fourth. All four of them really got going, and it turned a yawner into a really exciting game, Feldman said. You look at the book and it looks like it was Roessler and Parry versus Gage and Weiand in the second half. I cant fault our kids, Feldman added. They played with everything they had in their tank. The teams combined to go 29 of 35 on free throws. Both teams wrap up their respective regular seasons Thursday, as Crystal River travels to Weeki Wachee and Seven Rivers goes to Ocala Trinity Catholic. WARRIORSContinued from Page B1

Napier has experienced war and Olympics Associated PressLAKELAND John Napier used to race for America. And he used to fight for America. These days, he misses both. The former U.S. Olympic bobsledder was once thought of as someone who would be a top contender for a medal at next months Sochi Olympics. Instead, hes studying biochemistry at Florida Southern College, dabbling with some competitive water skiing on the side, continuing his transition each day from life as both a slider and a soldier who fought in Afghanistan. And hes not regretting anything. I miss going down the hill. I miss going down the hill with my friends, Napier said, sitting outside sipping coffee one recent morning before class. But Im in a really good place and Ive been given amazing opportunities right now to succeed in life. So I would say this is most important right now, school, college. He joined the National Guard in 2007 and became part of the Armys World Class Athlete Program, which meant he got support in exchange for a small time commitment and being a military ambassador through bobsledding. Thing is, Napier didnt want to short-change the arrangement, so he looked for ways to keep doing more with the military. That led him to make an unusual decision. After the Vancouver Olympics four years ago, heres how he stunned friends inside and outside the Army world: He asked to go to war. Eventually, the Army granted his wish and didnt just deploy him to Afghanistan, but gave him the opportunity also as he insisted to see battle. His first night there, bullets flew his way. I see the world from a different angle, Napier said. There were days when youre driving around on roads or on patrol and you know youve got probably a 50 percent chance of getting blown up on this road. Theres terrifying moments. I drive bobsleds at 90 mph, I go over water ski jumps, Ill do any sport known to man. And I was scared. Anybody would be. But you get the brotherhood experience, and theres no price you can pay for that. So he traded his bobsled for an M249 light machine gun, strapped 70 pounds of water and ammunition onto his 180-pound frame, read his Bible in tough moments and did the job. When it was over after nearly 6 1/2 months, he came back to bobsledding. It just wasnt the same, and after two seasons where results just werent what he wanted, he retired. It was my time, Napier said. I still felt the need to win, but there was something else too. There was a frustration, a thorn, a sadness almost. It was almost depressing for me to be there. I would say it was time. I got led out of the sport. One thing led to another, leading me to where I am right now, and Im happy where Im at. He chose biochemistry for a reason: Because its hard, he said. Thats pretty much been his reason for choosing almost everything. Bobsledding isnt easy, even for those like him who got started as an 8-year-old. War wasnt easy; Napier speaks openly about friends who were either killed there or committed suicide after coming home, unable to deal with the transition back to a normal life. Water skiing competitively isnt easy, as evidenced by how he was immobilized for three months after shredding one of his hamstrings. Biochemistry isnt easy; those who know him say a 10-hour study day isnt uncommon. And his next chapter wont be easy either, given that Napier is considering becoming a chiropractor. Hes the American dream, said Dr. Dave Gabay, a close friend of Napiers who has a chiropractic practice in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., just north of Napiers hometown of Schenectady. Its about moving forward in a positive direction, overcoming adversity. The number of his friends who are well-adjusted coming back from over there are a minority, not the majority. This is a kid who has risen above all this. Its a positive story. Next month, Napier will be on the couch, watching and rooting. Many members of the U.S. Olympic bobsled team that will compete in Sochi are his close friends. One of them, push athlete Chris Fogt, even served simultaneously in Afghanistan with Napier, the two crossing paths one day in a what became quite a hilarious moment. Seeing his buddy, Napier yelled Fogt! instead of Sir! because he temporarily forgot that he was addressing an officer. Even without Napier, the Americans might be in position to collect more bobsled medals in Sochi than any other nation. Hoping and praying they make it happen, Napier said.B4TUESDAY, JANUARY28, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEOLYMPICS Associated PressUSAs John Napier pilots with brakeman Christopher Fogt as they compete in the second heat in the mens two-man bobsled world championships Jan. 25, 1999, in Lake Placid, N.Y. Napier has been to the Olympics, been to war too, and a little part of him misses both. The former U.S. bobsled Olympian whos now a college student in Florida says moving on after being a slider and a soldier hasnt always been easy. But hes eager to watch American sliders race in Sochi next month, and hasnt ruled out a return to sledding either.

Lodwicks teammate Billy Demong and skier Bode Miller are headed to their fifth. Miller has won five medals and needs three more to tie short-track speedskater Apolo Anton Ohno as the most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian. Snowboarder Shaun White and speedskater Shani Davis could become the first American men to win gold in the same event in three straight Winter Games.

HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, JANUARY 28, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inside:Partners with a Heart banquet tickets on sale/ C6 ccording to the American Red Cross, one pint of donated blood can help as many as three people. They often need it in critical momentsafter an accident, for instancebut they may also need it during a planned surgery, after a procedure, due to a chronic condition such as sickle cell anemia, or during cancer treatments. Blood used to help accident victims is readily available to emergency medical professionals, and the first step in getting it there is when its donated. A single accident victim can need as many as 100 pints. Type O blood is especially important as the universal donor type, it can be given to patients with any blood type, and so can be given before a patients blood type is known if necessary. Its often in short supply, and always needed. Giving blood for the first time can be stressful if you dont know what to expect, and so being prepared and knowledgeable is the first step in a painless donation process. Potential donors are required to bring two forms of identification (such as a donor card, drivers license, or passport) to the donation facility, whether its a clinic or blood mobile. A mini-physical is conducted: a brief, private interview during which youre asked about your health history and past travel, and your temperature, pulse, blood pressure, and hemoglobin levels are checked. Then comes the donation itself: you sit for about 10 minutes while blood is drawn (other donation types, such as platelet, red cell, or plasma donations, can take longer).A sterile needle is used, and is used once and discarded. About a pint of blood is given. When the donation is over youre offered snacks and drinks, and then carry on with your day except that day, you helped save lives. Blood donations are crucial to maintain the supply of donor blood available to hospitals and medical facilities. The Red Cross estimates that although 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate, less than 10 percent actually do and blood cant be manufactured. It only comes from donors. With more than 41,000 donations needed every day, its a constant struggle to keep the supply out of the red, and every single donation is important. Giving about half an hour of your time and a pint of blood (one of the ten in your body) is immensely valuable, and could make a huge difference in someones health. The blood mobile is a convenient way to give blood, and the dates and locations of its next donation days are available online (lifesouth.org/drives/bloodmobile-locator/). There is also a fixed donation location in Citrus County at the Lifesouth Community Blood Center in Lecanto (527-3061 or lifesouth.org).

C2TUESDAY, JANUARY28, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE Options for a happy, healthy smile Ioften get questions about ways in which you can enhance the appearance of your smile with cosmetic dentistry. As you might already realize, each particular situation can be different. In fact, you might find out that a combination of some, or all, of the procedures below can be useful. If you are interested in enhancing your smile, it is important you contact your dentist to discuss the options available to you. You might want to ask what the advantages and disadvantages are for each procedure and why one might be better over the other. To follow is a small synopsis of the procedures cosmetic dentistry has to offer you. Bleaching: Bleaching is a chemical procedure used to whiten teeth, which often become discolored over time. Some people have their teeth bleached to remove stains, while others simply want a brighter smile. Bonding: Bonding is the process of using a composite resin to fill in gaps between teeth or to whiten them. Bonding also may be used to correct chipped teeth or minor decay. The bonding procedure may be completed in a single visit and the results last for several years, although some bonding resins are more susceptible to staining or chipping than other restorations. Contouring and reshaping: Often combined with bonding, contouring and reshaping procedures are used to correct crooked, chipped, irregularly shaped, or overlapped teeth. Contouring and reshaping procedures can alter the teeths length, shape or position; contouring also can be used to improve the bite. Contouring and reshaping procedures may be completed in a single visit and are ideal for patients with normal, healthy teeth who want subtle changes to their smiles. Crowns: Also known as caps, crowns are placed over a tooth to create a normal appearance. Crowns can be used to restore fractured, misshapen or discolored teeth, or those with significant structure loss. Crowns have a longer life expectancy than other cosmetic procedures, but they also are more expensive and time-consuming to place, requiring more than one visit. Crowns are generally used in cases in which other cosmetic procedures would not be effective. Veneers: Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic placed over the front of teeth to change their color or shape. In addition to improving teeth with uneven surfaces, veneers can be used to correct chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced, or crooked teeth. Placement of veneers often requires more that one visit, but they can be less expensive than crowns and have better color stability than bonded restorations. I hope this synopsis has helped you understand some of the procedures available to enhance ones smile. Dont forget to go to your dentist to discuss which procedure will be right for you.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

Funeral options offered at classSt. Timothy Lutheran Church Caregiver Support Group will offer a workshop sponsored by Brown Funeral Home and Cremation Service, How do you want to be remembered? at 1p.m. Tuesday, Over the past few weeks, we have discussed the causes of pain which are seen in many cancer patients. Last week we also began a discussion of the options available to physicians with regard to the treatment of pain by starting with the nonnarcotic over-the-counter and prescription medications available. Frequently, however, these medications are not adequate with regard to proper pain control and one must move onto stronger medications. Today, we will briefly discuss the opioids which are utilized in the treatment of more moderate to severe pain. While it is well known that opioids are our most powerful pain relievers, there always seems to be some fear among patients, and sometimes physicians, to initiate this form of therapy. Not only is their concern related to the side effects of the medications and the possible addictive properties, there is also the common perception that strong narcotic utilization means that death is near. For these reasons, the initiation of opioids is often delayed until the terminal phase of many cancer patients illness. Many different opioids are available today to utilize in advanced cancer pain. When one initiates a course of opioid therapy, this is generally started with one of the weaker to moderate strength medications. These consist of propoxyphene such as that which is found in Darvocet; codeine which can be found in a pure form or combined with acetaminophen in Tylenol No 3; oxycodone, which is the active narcotic found in Percocet; and Tylox, which is also combined with acetaminophen, and hydrocodone, which is found in such preparations as Lortab, Vicodin and Lorcet. When one initiates opioid therapy in patients, it is best to utilize one of the weaker opioids if you feel that they have the ability to provide pain control for the patient. The weaker opioids tend to minimize the potential side effects such as sedation and constipation when compared to the stronger medications. These weaker opioids can be utilized either by themselves or in combination with one of the non narcotic preparations. The problem with most of these medications is that they are only effective for approximately three to four hours, and if the pain is controlled for a shorter period of time, one must watch the total dose of these medications secondary to the amount of acetaminophen or Tylenol that they possess. If you begin to see that the medications are required at more frequent intervals, it is best to then move on to a stronger opioid which tends to be more effective in relieving the pain and also have a longer duration of action. The most commonly used stronger opioids tend to be available in sustained release formulations. These consist of oxycodone, which is available in a sustained release preparation called OxyContin; morphine, which is available in sustained release preparations known as MS Contin, Oramorph SR and Kadian; and fentanyl which is a sustained release medication which is available in a patch form known as the Duragesic patch. The advantage of the oxycodone and the morphine is that they are also available in immediate acting preparations which will provide pain relief generally within 30 to 45 minutes. These medications are available as pure compounds of narcotics and are not mixed with acetaminophen or other medications. Secondary to the fact that they are pure narcotics, there truly is no upper dose limit of the medication. One can truly increase the dose of this medication to any level required to relieve the pain that the patient is experiencing. The sustained release formulations of these medications allow you to provide the patient with longer intervals of comfort without requiring such frequent utilization of these preparations. Two other strong opioids, hydromorphone, better known as Dilaudid, and meperidine, better known as Demerol, are not available in sustained release long-acting preparations and tend to have an extremely high abuse potential secondary to the fact that they do require frequent repeated dosing and are generally avoided when dealing with advanced cancer pain. One thing that patients must keep in mind when initiating opioid therapy is the relationship that these drugs have with their potential side effects. Some of the effects are short-lived, such as sedation, dizziness or transient hallucinations. Patients may also initially experience some nausea and vomiting, but this can be controlled with proper medications and generally these anti-nausea preparations can be discontinued after one or two weeks once the patient has become accustomed to the medication. The most consistent and problematic side effect related to opioid therapy is that of constipation. Constipation certainly occurs with all opioids and increases as the strength and dose of the opioid increases. One must certainly remember to begin an active regime of bowel control when initiating opioid therapy. This generally means taking stool softeners and stimulants along with these medications to prevent the constipation which will certainly occur if this therapy is not started. Next week we will discuss two situations which often arise when dealing with narcotic therapy. First we will look at the possibility of developing a tolerance to the opioid preparations, and we will also discuss the potential for addictive properties of these drugs. Dr. C.

He went to his urologist, who suspected a kidney stone. He ordered a CT scan of his abdomen. When we do a CT scan of the abdomen, we see the lower part and some of the middle of the lung. The radiologist noted that the patient had small kidney stones, but he also found two small lung nodules. Both were roughly half an inch in size. Mr. Smith quit smoking many years ago, but he used to smoke heavily. He had a biopsy of the lung nodule under CT guidance by a radiologist. This is a relatively easy and fairly safe procedure done on an outpatient basis. He is now diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. There are two major types of lung cancer non-small cell and small cell. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) comes from epithelial cells (lining of lung) and is the most common type. Small cell lung cancer begins in the nerve cells or hormone-producing cells of the lung. The term small cell refers to the size and shape of the cancer cells as seen under a microscope. It is important for doctors to distinguish NSCLC from small cell lung cancer because the two types of cancer are usually treated in different ways. The cause of this cancer is smoking. The cumulative lung cancer risk among heavy smokers may be as high as 30 percent, compared with a lifetime risk of lung cancer of 1 percent or less in never smokers. After completely quitting smoking for 15 years, risk of lung cancer decreases by 80 percent to 90 percent compared to current smokers. It never becomes as low as never smokers. Small cell lung cancer is more aggressive and is usually not treated with surgery. It is treated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy. This responds well to the treatment, and almost 90 percent or more respond to the treatment. Chemotherapy is the use of drugs to kill cancer cells, usually by stopping the cancer cells ability to grow and divide. Systemic chemotherapy is delivered through the bloodstream to reach cancer cells throughout the body. It is administered in my office as an outpatient procedure. Mr. Smith will receive chemotherapy three days in a row every three weeks. He will also need radiation therapy. With modern advances, chemotherapy has become a lot safer and the side effects have reduced significantly. The dreaded side effects of significant nausea and vomiting are much less common and hair loss is also temporary and reversible. He stands good chance of cure. Sometimes serendipitous findings save lives. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist. He is the volunteer medical adviser of the Citrus Unit of American Cancer Society. Write to 521 N.

Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE How to talk to your doctor The oldest skill in the world talking to one another is easily the most important factor at a doctor visit. Conversation and communication is the lionshare of what a successful doctors office visit is about. Miscommunication puts patients at greater risk of becoming misdiagnosed, mistreated and possibly victims of preventable medical errors. Most patients are knowledgeable and assertive and empowered by the internet. They can research almost any malady on line but there are a lot of choices and options and they still need doctors to guide them and doctors need the most accurate information possible. In the olden days, doctors did very little other than diagnose disorders so that patients could confirm what was wrong with them and make plans accordingly. Now, there are so many treatment options available, it can be rather daunting, and so communicating is even more important than ever. As we all know, communicating is a two-way street. So, success and blame can be on both the patients and the doctors side. When you go to a doctors office visit, think ahead about what you are going to say and what type of questions you have, particularly if you already have a diagnosis and have done some research. If you are familiar with the doctor or have a friend or family member who is acquainted with the doctor, some basic pleasantries are okay, but make sure you do not waste your appointment time going on about those items. Express to the doctor in clearest terminology your biggest concerns and do not hold back and wait until the doctor is walking out the door to say, Oh, by the way, I got one last question. If it is important, get it out there. Ask your doctor to help you understand what is going on and what needs to be done. Even if you have been on the Internet and feel you know everything about your disease process because you have it for so many years, try to keep an open mind. And, ultimately, if you do not like what he or she says to you, you can always get a second opinion. Sometimes doctors can get technical and even if you both speak english, there can be language barriers and things can get lost in translation. So, do not hesitate to ask for something to be repeated so you can better understand a diagnosis and/or treatment plan. If you are timid, shy or unsure, you can take notes, Bring a family member or a friend with you. Two heads are always better than one. Also, be mindful that office visits are limited and if you have further questions, a second appointment or communication by phone, letter or email if appropriate might be helpful to answer any remaining issues. Try to avoid anxiety, confusion and fear by being proactive. Ask questions. Be familiar with your patient rights. Bring an advocate with you during any visits and/or decision-making and make lists of questions you want to ask the doctor. Make a list of all your medications so if any new medications are being prescribed, there is no confusion.

Hats Off to Fashion Get tickets now for 16th annual Key Center fundraiser show, tea Celebrating special Knights Special to the ChronicleTo reach out to the people of God, to show Gods love. That is what motivates the Knights of Columbus Council 6168 Family of the Month for November to become involved in a wide array of good work and involvement in the community. Les and Toni Colclasure were named Novembers Family of the Month by Vince Wojteczko, the councils family director; he said both are impeccable dressers and are wonderful examples to all of us on how to dress to honor the Lord when going to Mass. Both worship with the Our Lady of Grace charismatic community in Beverly Hills, are extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist, and serve in the healing ministry and ministry to homeless people in central Citrus County. Les also is a reader at Our Lady of Grace Church and floorman on a Wednesday bingo team, in addition to serving the council as its chancellor. Toni is the secretary on the parish liturgy committee and corresponding secretary for the Council 6168 Ladies Auxiliary. They came to Beverly Hills in 2011 from Springfield, Ill., via East Norriton, Pa., where they took time to care for a parent. Les is an accountant and worked for the State of Illinois. Toni served as a secretary in various offices of the Diocese of Springfield, and before retiring, in the chancellors office. Drafted in 1963, Les served two years in the Army, much of it handling classified documents in Fontainebleau near Paris. Toni volunteered at the Valley Forge Army Hospital in 1967 and 1968, where she cared for wounded soldiers returning from Vietnam. Very depressing, she said, because they were so young and injured, with many having lost arms and legs. Les and Toni have been married for 23 years; they have three children and seven grandchildren. Special to the ChronicleLes and Toni Colclasure were named Novembers Family of the Month by Council 6168 Knights of Columbus. Colclasure family honored by council Special to the ChronicleMatt Palmorino, a lifelong union electrician who helped collect money for intellectually handicapped before he even joined the Knights of Columbus, was tapped as Knights of Columbus Council 6168 November Knight of the Month. He joined the Knights on Aug. 20, after being encouraged to join by his neighbor in Pine Ridge Estates, Jose Gutierrez. Shortly after receiving the plaque designating him Knight of the Month, members at the same meeting elected him to the AFS (Abbot Francis Sadlier) Corp. board where he will help oversee and maintain property and buildings owned by Council 6168. An electrician since graduating from high school in 1961, Palmorino earned his spurs during six months at a Montreal trade school, compliments of the government of Canada. After graduating and receiving his license, as required in Canada, the school sent him to a union hall for a job and life as an electrician. He and his wife, Rocio, a native of Bogota, Columbia, moved to Pine Ridge from St. Peters, Mo., where he spent 12 years after moving there from New York. He was born in Montreal. He has two daughters in Canada, and Rocio last month was in London, where her daughter just gave birth to a granddaughter. Initially, he didnt know much about the Knights, but he joined because he wanted to help in the community. He is full of ideas: he has already improved the lighting system in the council hall and recently began work on improving the security lighting and camera systems. Knights of Columbus bingo director Bill Slade keeps Palmorinos phone number in his pocket, and Palmorino is a regular member of Rudy Langis Friday bingo team A.

Citrus Community Concert Choirs Holiday of Music Extravaganza was a delightful way to spend an afternoon. Directed by Jacki Scott with Sally Smith, accompanist, the concert included holiday song favorites and selections from Handels famous Messiah. St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Crystal River and Faith Lutheran Church in Lecanto hosted the two concerts. The extravaganza opened with A Jolly Merry Christmas by John Leavitt, and childhood memories flowed as we heard Up On the Rooftop. Carol of the Star followed, composed by Donald Moore. Guest accompanist Valerie Wehrenberg joined accompanist Smith for the fourhand piano piece Peter Go Ring Them Bells, arrangement by Mark Hayes. The highlight of the concert was the presentation of Psallite, by Michael Praetorius and with the arrangement by Russell Robinson. Praetorius, well known for his book on sacred and secular music practices, the Syntagma Musicum, published in 1619, was organist and court musician for the Duke of Brunswick. With both Latin and German text, Psallite can be sung any time of the year, although it has a Christmas theme. Not having been translated into English, in order for the original flavor to be experienced, the phonetic pronunciations were printed in our program book for us. Look Lovingly on the Child followed, speaking to us of the serene simplicity of rejoicing about the happy day of His birth. A spirited rendition, in the round, of Ronald Kauffmans arrangement of Ukrainian Bell Carol was a resounding favorite of the audience. A flawless solo by director Scott of Silent Night, with the arrangement of Rhonda L. Polay, was thoroughly enjoyed by Scotts many fans. A charming medley of holiday favorites including Sleigh Ride, The Little Drummer Boy and Its Christmas Again, concluded the first section of the concert. The second section opened with Gesu Bambino, by Frederick Martens and Pietro A. Yon, featuring soloists Shirley Perragaux and scholarship recipient Kathleen Dobran. From Carols for Choirs, we thrilled to the classic In the Bleak Mid Winter, Coventry Carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas, and The Holly and the Ivy, featuring soloists Beth Evans, Larry Jamieson and Pat Wolff. The third section of the concert was selections from Messiah by G.F. Handel, a tradition with the choir since its inception. The selections included For Unto Us a Child is Born. Recitative renderings were given by Hugh Phillips and Shirley Perragaux for There Were Shepherds Abiding in the Field, And the Angel Said Unto Them and Suddenly There Was With the Angel and Glory to God by the chorus. A soprano air, Rejoice Greatly, O Daughter Zion, was performed by Sue Mast. The concert magnificently concluded with a standing ovation as we joined in the incomparable Hallelujah Chorus. Thanks once more for the joys we receive attending the Citrus Community Concert Choirs concerts. Since 2003, the choir has awarded scholarships to deserving students studying in the field of music at the college level. The choir rehearses weekly at Faith Lutheran Church and welcomes new voices.

TUESDAY, JANUARY28, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Alfred North Whitehead, an English mathematician and philosopher who died in 1947, said, It requires a very unusual mind to make an analysis of the obvious. What some people see as obvious, others find unusual. Take, for example, todays deal. Look at the North hand. Your partner opens one heart, you respond one no-trump, and he rebids two clubs. What would you do now? It looks obvious to raise to three clubs, gameinvitational. But you would do that with a weaker hand. For example, take two of the low clubs and make them low diamonds. You would still raise to three clubs. This hand, though, is more powerful. In fact, if you had had king-queen-jack-sixth of clubs and the diamond king, you probably would have responded two clubs, not one no-trump, planning to rebid three clubs. How can you show a very good three-club raise? By rebidding two spades. This cannot be natural, because you would have responded one spade, not one no-trump, with length in that suit. And it says nothing about your holding in spades. (The same call can be used if opener rebids two diamonds and you have excellent support for that suit.) In this instance, South, with those wonderful aces, should continue with three spades to describe his distribution, and leave three notrump as an option should North have strong diamonds. Here, North would probably bid four clubs and South would raise to game. As you can see, five clubs needs either the heart finesse or the club finesse to work. But three no-trump has no chance with the club finesse failing.

PG-13 MotherRules Dear Annie: Im 46 years old, college educated, with no children. I recently celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary. Its not what I would call a good marriage. My husband occasionally has fits of anger and has been verbally abusive. More than eight years ago, I had a miscarriage. My husband wanted to keep trying. He repeatedly has said that he cant imagine a life without children. I told him that having children is not going to happen, and that if he wants a divorce over this, I wont fight him. He is welcome to find someone else to have children with. What I did not tell him is that soon after the miscarriage, I started taking birth control pills and continue to do so. I feel guilty that I might have misled him in that he may think there is a chance for children, although I would hope that at my age he would be past that. My question is: Should I tell him about the birth control? Im not sure what it would accomplish. Im afraid of his reaction to finding out, and divorce terrifies me. Torn Between What Is Right and What Is Safe Dear Torn: Regardless of what you may have told your husband eight years ago, if you allowed him to have the impression that you were willing to get pregnant again, then obviously, you have been dishonest. This was grossly unfair to him. But you cannot undo the past, and with your husbands anger issues, we can understand why there seems no point in telling him now. But a marriage that isnt good to begin with is not likely to get better without professional assistance. Decide whether divorce terrifies you so much that you are willing to live like this for another 40 years. Dear Annie: My husbands sister chooses not to take turns hosting family get-togethers. She has a beautiful home, but claims she does not have any social living space. She lives next door to her parents, so either they host, or we do it at our home. Her parents even host her childrens birthday parties. She just gets to show up. There is a lot of time, energy, planning, preparation and cost associated with having everyone over, and I feel she should reciprocate. However, my husband and in-laws do not see this as a problem. Am I asking too much? Olympia, Wash. Dear Olympia: You are right that your sister-in-law should reciprocate, but it doesnt matter. She isnt going to do it. Your choice is simply which get-togethers you host and which belong to your inlaws. If you remove your sister-in-law from the hosting equation, you will be less resentful. You can cut back on the number of times you do this or ask your sister-in-law to reciprocate by cooking a dish or bringing the appetizers, but you cannot force her to open her home. Dear Annie: I want to thank Still Suffering for the gutwrenching letter she wrote about being abused by her uncle. Any of us who have lived for years with the feelings of guilt and shame caused by being molested by a relative could have written that letter. When I was 10, I was molested by my older brother for several years. I am now in my 70s and have never fully recovered from the damage it caused. For years, I kept my filthy little secret. Last year, my brother died, and I did not go to his memorial service. Since then, I have told several family members. None of them was surprised, and all were supportive of me. Although I am overwhelmed with the love and support, I will take this scar to my grave. I hope that others who are victims of molesters will seek help and speak up early and not wait for the pervert to be out of their lives forever.
